LGBT Book and Video Library

The LGBT Center resource library has over 500 volumes available which provide resources to the campus community on issues such as "coming out," LGBT history, education, family, healthy sexuality and more. In addition, the library also has a diverse selection of fiction. Our video library holds nearly 100 vidoes that address LGBT issues, and also includes many popular films.

Here we have a myriad of resources and documents that can help further your knowledge on LGBT topics. Feel free to read online or print out a hardcopy to share with others. Many of the resources have been adapted from other organizations and authors.

OutFront, MN, HRC, GLSEN, and PFLAG are fantastic organizations and have many more resources available on their sites. Visit them regularly to keep informed and up to date on everything LGBT.
